of the group's system of levies that were installed in new orleans in the gulf coast after katrina. >> people asked about located -- katrina and the rebuilding. not smart to build on an ocean. will the flood-prone areas be redefined, and will reveal did occur outside areas? -- will the rebuilding occur outside those areas? guest: this will be a tricky question going forward. along the jersey shore, and iconic part of their coast, a huge industry for them. they are saying it needs to be rebuilt. there are other places in new york city, mayor michael bloomberg is saying that we need to reevaluate places to rebuild and make sure we move around a little bit. especially with the storm coming at a time when state and local governments are so strapped for money. that is something that is being talked about, and i think there are certain places where you can see development has increased in recent years that may have made flooding worse. this is something you hear anecdotally of the ground. talk to people on staten island where there was very bad flooding. they say 40 years ago the neighborhood ports
lists of policies and often their wish lists of policies, after hurricane katrina there was a meeting at the heritage foundation just two weeks after the storm hit. parts of the city were still under water and there was a meeting and "the wall street journal" reported from it and the heading was 31 free market solutions for hurricane katrina and you go down the list and it was -- don't re-open the public schools. replace the public schools with vouchers and drill for oil in anwar and the arctic national wild life reserve and what kind of free market solutions are these? here you have a crisis that was created by a collision between heavy weather which may or may not have been linked to climate change and what climate change looks like and colliding with weak infrastructure because of years and years of neglect. let's get rid of the infrastructural together and drill for the oil which is the root cause of climate change. that's their shock doctrine, and i think it's time for people shock. >> people shock? >> which we've had before, if you think about 1929 and the market shock and the w
information on your show some several weeks ago. that might be a beginning. >> let's bring in katrina vanden heuvel. i just find that comment on sunday by john mccain outrageous. why is he attacking susan rice like that? >> there are a number of reasons. i think he's trying to stay relevant as you said. i think this is a political hit job against the president. that's who they are aiming at. i think they are doing the fox and the fox fuelled hysteria about the attacks in benghazi. but this reminds me of the republican flight from reality, the post truth politics mitt romney engaged in. he would travel around the country saying president obama did an apology tour traveling the world. this guy, senator mccain, keeps talking about the danger o of america's light footprint. if you want to deal with sub tans and not just the calls mccain has made about weakness and light footprint, we need to look squarely at u.s. foreign policy in the region and what john mccain and lindsey graham are doing is they are distracting us from confronting the extraordinary challenges we face in north africa and the m
. that is all right. i think we are aiming at the wrong target. during hurricane katrina we saw what corporations were pushing our government to do, to drop affirmative action standards, to relax immigration requirements so the corporation could go to mexico, and as far as way as thailand to bring in workers, and pay them less and go past american workers. i think we ned to look at the policies that are being driven by the corporations that enable these workers to -- that are getting these workers into the united states so they can work for wages. many corporations are paying workers substandard -- they are not able to afford healthcare. there is something else going on here. i'm not a con conspiracy cyst but i want to know what else is going on beyond this. >> i know the corporations don't make the law, we make the law. i know that it's the obama administration that is promoting welfare use and benefits use by immigrants. we are talking about legal immigrants. the whole premise of coming here is to get away from need, to make something out of yourself. there is also something else t

[laughter] >> maryn graduate from georgetown university and has a master's degree from northwestern university those of our panelists. so, let me start with a very, sort of a historic question, their agenda. the late 1960s we were hearing that infectious diseases were over, that we have solved that problem, we had all these wonderful antibiotics and it was thought that i was going to be enough, along with others isolate antiviral drugs to some extent, and it was thought by some chemical in some very it could people who should've known better you would think that we had closed the book on the infectious diseases. but that clearly was very wrong. so why was it wrong? what has changed so much? what led to that mistake in prediction? >> i guess i am looking at you first, tremont. >> i think wasn't just antibiotics although that's a we always talk about. in the 1960s there was this extremely heady notion that science could solve everything. right? so we're goin

[laughter] maryn has a master's degree from northwestern university. those are our panelists. so, let me start with a historical question, very general. in the late 1960's, we were hearing that infectious diseases were over. that we have solved that problem. we had all of these wonderful antibiotics and it was thought that was going to be enough, along with other drugs, to some extent, and it was thought by some influential people, who should have known better, that we had closed the book on infectious diseases. that clearly was wrong. why was it wrong? what has changed? what led to that mistaken prediction? >> you are looking at me. first, i think it was not just antibiotics, although that is what we talk about. in the 1960's, there was a notion that science was going to solve everything. we were going to have cars that could fly, for example, which is something we were waiting for a few months ago. we were not concerned about pollution or r
